About Me

My name is Justin Mijal, and I am a Los Angeles based freelance visual effects artist currently working on feature films, videogame cinematics, commercials, and trailers.

I’m an entirely self-taught and thorough artist.  I spent the better part of my teenage years teaching myself every piece of software I could get my hands on, and I feel that I bring a unique perspective to the table in that regard.  I have been a visual effects artist for over 12 years professionally.

I am a very detail-oriented Visual Effects Artist specializing in asset creation for FX pipelines, texturing, lighting, shading, and compositing.  I’m meticulous and organized with years of experience on big-budget feature films, broadcast, cinematics, print and web content creation.

I also operate as a freelance photographer, photographing anyone and everything that I can get in front of my lens.  Photography is my passion, and I love that I’m able to have two amazing hobbies turned into career paths.

Thor: The Dark World (2014)

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014)
